…Has been a very full week! There has been so much I wanted to post about, so I’m going to try to bring it all together in one post.
I’ve been watching: The final episode of Educating Yorkshire, and if you haven’t seen it you HAVE to watch it! It tells the story of a boy who manages to overcome severe difficulties with the help of some exceptionally caring staff, and it’s absolutely magical. http://www.channel4.com/programmes/educating-yorkshire
I’ve been visiting: Soho Theatre to see the outstanding ‘Credible Likeable Superstar Role Model’ by Bryony Kimmings. Bryony has worked with her 9 year old niece to create an alternative role model for ‘tweens’, aiming to challenge the sexualised, limited role models they are currently faced with. I was totally blown away by the force of this show – a force which ultimately came out of her love for her niece, and passion to make the world a more promising place for her generation. It is so hard to do justice to what she has managed to do – I strongly recommend you see it if you can – and if you do you can expect darkness, despair and searching questions, but also fun, humour and hope. http://www.bryonykimmings.com/artwork.html http://www.catherinebennett.so/ http://www.sohotheatre.com/
I’ve been reading: Blogosphere magazine (get a copy here http://www.blogospheremagazine.com/magazines )
I’ve been wearing: Woollen tights, a black dress and some lovely cardigans I got last year 🙂
I’ve been eating: Self decorated rich tea biscuits. It had been so busy for so long our cupboards were bare – so to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings I made these with the cake decorating bits and pieces I had lying around. The almond and cherry ones were the best!!
Work Highlights this week: Being in Year 9 RE Panel Sessions with a Humanist, Christian and Jew; the ‘confirmation’ of some of the young people in my youth group which was such a joyful celebration; making a ‘Sukkah’ at the Infant School when teaching about the Jewish festival of Sukkot.
This post by Jo Goddard asks ‘If you could do anything tomorrow, what would it be?’http://joannagoddard.blogspot.co.uk/2008/08/if-you-could-do-anything-tomorrow-what.html
I think I would have a walk on Saunton beach, and then curl up under a duvet with a hot chocolate, Andrew and Jamie the dog, and the next season of NCIS 🙂 What would you do?
